Chester resident Lyle Woodford makes time, in each day of his retirement, to create movement and beauty from discarded scraps of wood.
Looking for a job, he moved to Chester in 1962 and was hired by the Collins Pine Co. Over the next 36 years he worked in the Woods Division, where he performed automotive maintenance and welding on a variety of heavy logging vehicles, both at the mill site and out in the woods.
After 36 years on the job he retired in 1998, but the change of daily location obviously didn’t dim his desire to tinker with a variety of heavy vehicles and tools.
